We are the headquarters for Florida Keys Fun Fishing in beautiful Islamorada, Florida. Famous for its spectacular Fishing, Islamorada offers Flats and Backcountry Fishing, Fly Fishing, Everglades fishing and all types of Florida Keys Fishing! A day fishing in Islamorada should be entertaining, fun-filled and relaxing. Leave that stress and frustration on the dock and come fishing with us. Whether you charter a fishing boat in Islamorada for the first time, or fish a lot or have never picked up a rod, we can ensure an awesome Florida Keys fishing experience. From family oriented "catch fish" trips to educated fly fishing for bonefish, we have skill and patience to accommodate you all. Polite, professional and ultra-friendly, our fishing guides have what it takes to provide an unforgettable day on the water. Here in Islamorada, The Sport fishing Capital of the World, there is no better way to spend the day with your family, then fishing in the Backcountry. Right outside Islamorada’s backdoor, lies approx. 900 sq. miles of the Everglades National Park. The ENP offers a wide variety of fishing as well as wildlife watching. The average water depth is only 3 ft. deep making this a very safe fishing adventure for kids of all ages with no worries of getting seasick.
Florida Keys Fun Fishing has two brand new Lake& Bay boats (20’ skiff & a 24’ bay boat) both are able to accommodate a family of four comfortably, making our catch fish trips a delight to the whole family. Did you ever think Mom would catch a shark? Better yet, take a family photo with the kids holding the shark? These are the memories that are talked about for life. With someone other than Mom to entertain the kids, everyone gets to fish and enjoy the day.
As most of our Captains are new proud fathers, we all have the patience to teach novice of kids how to cast, fight, and catch their very own trophy. All while educating the kids on the Everglades and the effects Mother Nature has on our precious environment.
Do Mom and Dad need a break? You can always send the kids for a ½ day or so and enjoy some alone time.
Many visitors are unsure what to fish for and what level angler they really are. Others just want to have to catch something and lots of them. With this in mind we leave out the “high profile” fish and instead we catch Seatrout, Snappers, Jacks, Ladyfish, Catfish, etc and of course everyone’s favorite, SHARKS!
On light tackle these fish can provide constant rod bending, drag pulling, action while enhancing your angling skill, moving you one step closer to catching the tricky Bonefish. These trips are a big hit and families who want to catch fish can’t wait to go.
Remember! Backcountry fishing eliminates the seasickness factor found in offshore and deep sea fishing. Although we have no bathrooms on the boats, we are rarely more than 15 minutes away from facilities. This trip ensures the ultimate family quality time. With no computers or video games allowed, nature alone occupies your time together.
